said the way that we get a voting platform that would transform america is for latinos and blacks and poor white people to get together. i would add women to that. we have a number of women this year that hopefully they will be voting for what they want. we cannot get all of what we want unless we help someone else get what they want, and that leads to our working together, starting to strategize for 2016, when we made want somebody else to be president forced to change those people in the senate. usually, we'd wait until the last minute then come together. we need to get away from that. the dream that act does not hurt me. i want my brothers and sisters to have the dream act, but also to understand, i want as a woman, as an african-american. i want an african-american woman on the supreme court. we will then get to where we want to go. >> you mentioned -- latin decisions and a poll that came up with, which showed that he knows our elderly -- overwhelmingly fund of the president and not fond of the other party. it is not that one party is so great over the other. it really is that
is not cool. >> let's talk about -- let's talk about appealing to latino voters. there's a new poll out today. back in 2008 mccain had 31% of latino vote. that was not as good as george w. bush in 2004 he had 44% of latino vote. romney need at least a quarter to a third of latino vote toeshs competitive in states like colorado where the debate is and that kind of thing. real quickly because i want to get to donna on this issue. what does he need to do to appeal to latino voters? >> i think latino voters need to know more about mitt romney. they know very little. precious little about him. the little they do know they don't like. he has begun to change his tone. ep needs to continue doing latino outreach and doing events, doing interviews, doing media, pouring money and resources into paid media and to outreach efforts. >> donna to that point, romney has actually moved closer to president obama on immigration issues just very recently saying he's not is going to rerocky the visas, deport young illegal immigrants under the new law here. does that present a problem to the president if he moves c
%, but african-americans and latinos and women. i just want to make one final point though. it's so important. >> please. >> other thing that's so devastating i think about general powell's endorsement of president obama, this is somebody who knows something about what's going on in the middle east and the iraq war after the bush administration let him go out there and lie to the american people. >> just a bit. >> so point being, when he says i have taken a look at what obama is doing, which he said in his statement, i have taken a look at what romney is proposing, and i don't think that's the right way to go, this is -- he has been there. he has been a part of this, the beginnings of this war frankly going back to gulf war one. this is somebody who has deep knowledge about a war that has basically been a part of tanking our economy that we're finally digging ourselves out of. >> thank you so much karen finney, michelle cottle, and professor james peterson who rushed to the studio. thank you, sir. >> thanks, mare tin. >>> next, another day, another day without interviews from mitt romney. mor
cycles ago and you may remember george w. bush made a point of courting the latino vote. he was the texas governor and he even spoke spanish on the campaign trail. but governor mitt romney's position and the republican moves some of them on immigration and border control and health care, could be causing some problems and eroding some of that goodwill and the inroads that president obama -- president bush made in the latino community. that is the fastest growing part of the electorate and it is critical for president obama's campaign because he may, in fact, be banking, banking on latinos to win his re-election. the reason i can say that is because he actually made this extraordinarily telling comment to the "des moines register" in what at one point was an off the record interview, but that he and his campaign released. here's the quote -- but that raises some fascinating questions about mr. president obama's election strategy. our cnn contributor and daily beast senior columnist john avalon written a piece about this. i encourage you for wait for this interview to be over and then to yo
thing he said that was really interesting is that latinos -- should i win a big reason will be because the republican nominee and party have so alienated the fastest-growing demographic group in the country the latino community. if the turnout is over 9%, obama should win the lead among them is massive. do you think that turnout will be the thing to make the difference in nevada, colorado, florida, perhaps virginia, those competitive states with growing latino populations? >> if obama wins colorado and virginia you have to attribute it in part to that margin. when's sort of interesting, that's difficult to measure well and not all pollsters using spanish-speaking interviews and the rest but the nbc news/"wall street journal" poll i believe gave president obama 70% and the same as the decisions poll of the last week. that's actually slightly higher than percentage than the exit poll four years ago and equals the margin of four years ago, that's something different from everybody else except probably african-american voters where the numbers have gone down so i think that's right. >> mar
obama is ahead by 50 points among latinos, but their enthusiasm was less than in 2008. that was another aspect of last night. >> glen, my thinking had been, while it was mathematically possible for romney to get to 270 electoral votes without ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, that was like a three- or four- cushion shot in pool. is ohio what we should be looking at more than anything else? >> that is a really good question, charlie, because it is much easier for mitt romney to win the presidency if he wins ohio. there is the reason no republican has won the presidency without winning ohio. is even more true. i entered this election cycle believing that there were three key states instead of just florida and ohio. i added a virginia to that list. if they are at the top, the next half level down his north carolina. -- is north carolina. look, clearly, governor romney is stronger in florida and virginia to build a very competitive state race now. ohio is a place where he does need a significant comeback. well taken,s are that for many voters, the election started last night. if he is going to
like it is a ploy to get the conservative latino vote? >> i think that it is a little bit of desperation. it is something you might have expected months earlier. what's shocked me kind of up until this point is romney was pushed so far to the right in the primary because he was really worried about santorum and all of them, perry and because he had this history as the governor of massachusetts and had a reputation as being more of a moderate, he -- especially on immigration really took a hard right position, to the right of rick perry, to the right of almost everyone else running and he never really tacked back. he's kind of stuck with that all the way through and i think finally he may be starting to realize well, we need something to offer. the problem is at this point a lot of the perceptions and a lot of the perceptions of romney really historically negative for an actual nominee of the party. have sunken in. so i don't know if you can really make a fundamental change in how people perceive you. but he's got
talk about research and p.o.s. does the polling for one sub-group, latinos -- >> so you're the conspirators on the left wing of the polling. >> barack obama is ahead by 50 points with latinos. the question is, their enthusiasm was less than 2008. that is another aspect. >> my thinking had been, while it was mathematically possible for romney to get the electoral votes without ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, that was like a three or four-cushion shot in pool. is ohio what we should be looking at more than anything else? >> that is a good question. it is much easier for mitt romney to win the presidency if he wins ohio. i entered this election cycle believing that there were three key states instead of just florida and ohio. i would add virginia to that list. the next half level down is north carolina. clearly, governor romney is stronger in florida and virginia. those are very competitive states right now. all i know is someplace where he does need a significant comeback. fred's points are well-taken. for a lot of voters, the election started last night. if he is going to h
across the country on election day. new reporting suggests they will target latinos. the congressman joins me next. >>> another boss is threatening employees if they don't vote romney. the story from wisconsin is ahead. >>> and the jobs being outsourced by sensata are just the tip of the iceberg in mitt romney's economy. i'll expand the map and make the case tonight. >>> welcome back to "the ed show." thanks for watching tonight. there are new concerns, a right wing group tied to the koch brothers is planning to intimidate brothers on election day. true the vote is a tea party vote monitoring organization based in texas. they are planning to station 1 million poll watchers across the country on election day. the group claims their mission is "to restore truth, faith and integrity to our elections." but if you look at true the vote's history, their real goal is to harass minority voters and scare them out of voting. back in 2010, their dirty tricks caused the justice department too get involved. the group was accused of hovering over voters, getting into election workers' faces and bl
the enthusiasm gap. a firm that does the polling for nbc news, within one sub group, latinos -- of au are the conspiratoria left-wing appalling -- >> barack obama had 50% with latinos, the poll is their enthusiasm was less than in 2008. >> glen, my thinking had been while it was inadequate -- mathematically possible for romney to get to 270 electoral votes without ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, that was a cushion shot in pool. is ohio but we should be looking at more than anything else? >> that is a good question, because it is much easier for mitt romney to win the presidency if he wins ohio. is a reason -- i entered this election cycle believing that their word out three key states instead of dust florida and ohio. i would add virginia to that list, and then if they are at the top, the next half-level down is where carolina. look, clearly governor romney is stronger in florida and virginia. those are very competitive states right now. ohio is a place where he doesn't need a significant comeback, and i think fred's points are well taken, which is for a lot of voters the election start
to the president, will african-americans, latinos and women turn out for him like they did in 2008? for governor romney, the challenge is getting support in states that president obama won in 2008. the governor currently outperforms john mccain among independents, men and mid western voters. all groups that president obama won four years ago. let's bring in john harwood. john, so in 2008, president obama won those groups that romney is now doing well with. the latest data shows the president kept his double digit lead among women. do we see a tighter margin? the president's support is sky high among african-americans, latinos he's up by more than 60 points. and the numbers are good, but at this point, are they enough to win is what the obama campaign is wondering. >> well, the obama campaign could still lose it. mitt romney is very close to them in battleground states. but at this moment when you look at the electoral map to get to 12 270, romney is not where he needs to be. he is doing better than john mccain with some of the key groups, but he has to do a lot better. other thing worth noting i
they will target latinos. the congressman joins me next. >>> another boss is threatening employees if they don't vote romney. the story from wisconsin is ahead. >>> and the jobs being outsourced by sensata are just the tip of the iceberg in mitt romney's economy. i'll expand the map and make the case tonight.

racially charged when we need to come together to solve monumental problems black or white latino, asian, that confront us all. lou: the obama's campaign supporters doing everything they could to be down the story even before it was revealed on hannity last night. the response team sent out a list of skeptical from the york magazine and the "new york times" all professing the injustice station justice saying that the video was published before. we will take up with the former pentagon official and former reagan advisor the "a team" the most important question is if governor romney comes out swinging or takes a more passive approach joining us now is steve hayes. in the way the world you could imagine governor romney to be so secure if he would not be aggressive? >> no. he could be because the advice suggest the does everything he can from look being too aggressive listening to focus groups with suburban housewives who like obama may have voted for him and do not want to see somebody attack the guy they voted 47 but certainly attacking the policies and their consequences painfully to mill
, it will be due to the latino vote. reporter: yes, there is a skeptical side of me that said that was all. they didn't then get reporters to focus on the wind. eventually put it on the record so they know that the latino section was a focused and apart that he wants focused on. but i do not think overall the ploy worked. if they were that good. if you look at the front page of the des moines register today, it does not seem too flattering. it is a split screen on the front page. one have says ronnie closes with optimism, the other half is a picture of president obama and says obama sharpens criticism. they are not really good pictures. now come of that paper could endorse president obama in coming days. but i don't know if the off the record thing work for president obama speech you iowa is very important in this home stretch. if you so much, good to see you. bill: he is precisely right about these battleground states and the advertisements. you can time it every time the station goes to a commercial break. i think you are exactly right. >> how many times can you get hit over the head wit
to the number. hispanic and latino unemployment. quickly, if you look the at the graphic from 2008 to 2012 and you look at the difference here and the numbers as they're adding up. you're talking about 10% overall unemployment according to bls, in september of 2012. that's not sitting well in the hispanic community and the talk today to the executive director of the hispanic leadership network. >> hispanics are looking at the unemployment rate which has been stuck at 10% and above for the last 44 months, and saying, mr. president, where are the jobs? you campaigned heavily in 2008 to bring jobs back to the hispanic community and they're not there. >> bret: break down this thing into these sections, into numbers that are not great. >> that's right, and look, i think the romney campaign has a sense that it's making progress in its argument among hispanic voters and i would not at all be surprised to see an even more concerted push for the romney campaign to make precisely that argument on unemployment, on jobs, with the hispanic community in particular. >> bret: okay, next up, the friday lig
suck. being latino wouldn't win you the election but saying jokingly that you wish you were might actually lose it for you. >> the president needs to go after mitt romney but he can't look like a pit bull on stage. that's a tough order. it's a fine line to walk. the debate will not be the same as it was two weeks ago. the podiums are gone. the candidates will have to look comfortable and welcoming to a room full of undecided voters. mitt romney showed in the last debate he can make the most of his rehearsed lines to connect with regular voters. >> i have had the occasion of meeting people across the country. i was in dayton, ohio, and a woman grabbed my arm and said i've been out of work, can you help me? and a rally in denver, a woman said my husband has had four jobs in three years, part-time jobs, he's lost his most recent job and we have now lost our home. can you help us? and the answer is yes. we can help. but it's going to take a different path. >> and what about those workers in illinois. that story coming up later in the broadcast. does romney feel the same way about them
critical and florida, that the latino vote along with the women vote is the key cohort. and we have seen that. blow it sup a big story, and that's not the actual substance, but that clearly is hitting a very targeted micro group. >> jennifer: well the numbers are important, and in florida obviously this is an important issue, not just immigration but the ground game for the gop, and "the tampa bay times" tweeted today that yesterday the gop had said that they had 10 million voter contacts in florida, and said they taught 5.7 million contacts in florida. this is not just each day, this is over all. so you saw a big number yesterday, and then they sort of contracted it. it seemed like yesterday they might have been exaggerating their numbers, and changing them day-to-day. the voter contact aspect of things is the most key part of the ground game. they seem to be using the romney ryan way of talking about the deficit to do their voter contact analysis. first of all you can't have that type of a difference between the two numbers. that would suggest that there may not be q
. >> the polls have the president leading mitt romney in california and among latino voters. there is good news for mitt romney on the heels of his performance in the first presidential debate. several new polls show him closing the gap between him and president obama. how big of a jump in the polls are we talking about here? >> reporter: po to put it safely here, mitt romney closed the gap. keep in mind, heading into last week in that debate, mitt romney was trail is trawling in several key battleground states and national limit what won't to do is show you some of the polls we were looking at today and with four weeks to the elect, this is cause for fresh concern among the obama campaign and look at this. we're going to start with gallop. gallop before the debate asked voters who was ahead. at that point, obama, 50%; romney, 45% and drop below here and look at what they say now after that first debate. 47% to 47% gallop tonight has it in a dead heat. you might look at that and say, hey, it's one poll and maybe it's a napshot of the race. several other major polls came out and saying almost ex
. people are enthusiastic. president obama enjoys overwhelming support from women. from latinos, from middle class voters and from independents, and he is going to win this election because people know that we can't go backwards, as mitt romney has proposed, to economic policies that crashed our economy. we can't turn medicare into a voucher system. we can't have a president who would veto the dream act and thinks we should have 12 million undocumented immigrants self-deport. we can't have a candidate become president like mitt romney who hasek treatment views on women's health. >> let's me ask you about what's going on with florida. senator nelson according to democrats whom i talked to in the last 24 hours, say that connie mack, whom you see on the screen, has risen unexpected to them because bill nelson, senator, did badly in his debates. are you going to lose your senate seat there? zplo zplo. >> no bill nelson will win the election. he's been ahead of connie mack who is extremely conservative and that does not have the policy chops or the experience to earn the support of florida
but on demographics. they need to get young people out, black voters out and latinos voters and hispanic voters out. they lost the white vote by big margins in florida and the male vote. so they need women to come to their side. that's where you see them focus. florida is a strange state. the north is the deep south and the south of florida is the northeast and the midwest. where it all mixes together is in the i-4 corridor from tampa to orlando and daytona beach and that's where the battle is fought and won in the state. >> we know the distinction between the cuban-american influence and their support in large part to the republican party in that state, if that distinction is needed at this point. i do have to ask you about fairly the romney ground game in the state as well. >> well, you know, they say, look, we've made a lot of voter contacts. those are largely robocalls and mailers, but they're doing a good job of it. i'm a no party affiliation vo voter. i got calms from the romney campaign and mailers and i don't get anything from the obama campaign. the romney campaign is reaching out to a bro
a long time ago it has solved the problem in the senate race there. the numbers of the latino population are increasing rapidly. texas, florida, states like that. they write off the latino population at their own peril. right now during the republican presidential debate we heard the rhetoric there. they do not seem to realize the country is not changing. host: jim, you are a ken rudin on with, the npr political junkie. go ahead. caller: i enjoy your comments and enjoyed watching you today. jennifer granholm, she is such a wonderful states lady. unfortunately, she cannot run for president. that is a really unfortunate coincidence. but she has done so much for michigan. when she was such a big part of the structure bailout of the auto industry, and helped michigan and all of those states. what she displayed at the democratic convention was wonderful. it is unfortunate that over all the republican administrations, we never have this kind of energy displayed to save jobs for the textile industry, where we could have saved those jobs and preserve all of that structure that was there to suppl
'll tell you as a latino on cnn talking about being pro-romney, i get a lot of hate myself. stacey, stick to your guns, speak your mind. be true to yourself. people have died so we have the freedom to speak our mind and to vote our will. it was martin luther king jr.'s dream, the reason john lewis got beat up. be yourself. vote your conscience. and, folks, we are a nation of tolerance and we value diversity and different opinions. >> that's great advice. now plug your twitter so you can get more criticism. how can people reach you? >> @pete dom nic. >> i think biden is way cooler and going to get the youth vote. i think where biden differentiates himself tomorrow is showing how he's worked in a bipartisan way naming all the different times as a senator, a vp, that he's worked specifically with republicans to get things done. i think that's where obama differentiates himself also. i think romney and ryan are going too much partisanship. i think the one who wins the independent is a candidate. i'm really going to work with people and i've done it as vp, president and senator. >> i so hope w
students who are not p oor or latino or black. i do not look at it that is -- as something that is harming white students. i think the tough thing is is there is a larger pool of students who are qualified for admissions. people are going to be upset when they are not admitted, but it is not because race is one of the issues considered among 12 different things considered. guest: i noticed one of the earlier answers pointed towards the possible area of consensus. she seems somewhat open to the transparency argue -- i did that we argue for. our major remedy would be a make public how the system works. it is now very secretive. no university ever voluntarily makes public how much weight begins to race nor how well the people who are admitted how well they do. if i was coming in from high school, i would want to know that information before i decided what college to go to. is this college going to take me in as a token and put me in the bottom of the class? transparency would be a very powerful way to improve everything about the situation. if people would go along with the idea of more trans
areas predominantly african-american or latino. >> reporter: the billboards have been popping up in cities in ohio and wisconsin. 85 in milwaukee, 30 in columbus, another 30 in cleveland and 31 in cincinnati. protests started almost as soon as they went up demanding the signs come down. >> this billboard is nothing but a symbol of pure unadulterated suppression to target an african-american community. >> reporter: the two advertising companies that sold the space, clear channel and norton outdoor, say the buyer was not out to target minorities. >> there was no request for any specific demographic target at all. they wanted the best locations they could get for those four weeks leading up to the election. >> reporter: the bigamist ri is who's behind them? the billboard itself does not tell. it reads paid for by a private family foundation. and neither company will say who that is. after declining an on camera interview, here's what clear channel wrote to cnn. "the advertiser put into the contract to remain anonymous. it is our policy to require advertisers including political adve
is that good for president obama? given the president's support among african-americans, latinos and other voters, governor romney needs to keep the president to 37%, no more than 38% of the white vote. if the president's cracking 47% of the white vote, that's a formula for an obama victory. and where are the key big battleground states? there are several in the midwest. ohio, iowa, wisconsin. look at the race in the midwest. obama, 52%, romney, 43%. the president is winning that part of the country. out west in denver, colorado, nevada, among the battlegrounds out here in the west. ten-point lead in the west for the president. 54% to 44%. the white vote and if you look regionally, there are things that give the president's team some optimism. >> if you're the romney campaign looking at these new poll numbers, what should give the romney folks some optimism? >> reporter: one of the reasons we are back in a closer race, a statistical dead heat nationally f you go state by state, it's a little different, this number, governor romney has improved his standing among independents. he leads by e
in battleground states. in colorado tonight, that state will be decided if most latinos turn out and most evangelicals turn out. that will be decided by suburban women. more moderate than mitt romney. virginia now with the demographic changes not much better. what do people want? their legs are tired. four, five, six, tough years economically and they want somebody to tell them, the next four years will be better. if he can beat the president on that question, he can change the race tonight. >> we'll hear about the middle class. if there is a drinking game, that is the phrase to look for to drink the most. gloria was saying that joe biden's phrase will be used perhaps by governor romney. will that be effective? >> i would say this is about vice president biden. when he is himself he's more relatable, and more empathetiem. than romney is on purpose. the reason why he can make mistakes and still beloved, he's authentic. the most authentic person on the state has a big advantage. >> i think john's argument is exactly right. romney has to shake up this race, but the first few minutes, i will
to prohibit blacks and latinos from voting, and whether that is true or not, i don't know. but that is why they say. these laws have been blocked in a lot of places for these reasons. host: charlene in milwaukee, wisconsin. democratic caller. caller: i am in my mid-50's, and i'm a democrat, retired. i have seen a lot of things that have happened in my lifetime -- civil rights, martin luther king, the whole bit. i have a real hard deal figuring out what is wrong with a lot of young blacks. because obama is in office, i guess they think that he is supposed to do everything. he is the president paid he is a black president, sure, but he is still the president. don't blame him for the misconceptions of having to have a black man in office and then being able to get a job. if obama was a white president, what would the issues truly be? i don't believe that the woman in mississippi by saying that 90% of an african-americans voted for id -- i think there must have been something attached to that amendment, or the voting bill that allowed blacks to vote for it in spite of what it meant. i think sh
